Outfit of the Day: 24th Birthday!

Last week Friday, it was my 24th birthday! A big one, I know...just kidding. Alas, I celebrated, and it is not a birthday unless you get the biggest and most caffeinated drink for free from Starbucks! It was venti caramel brulee latte with 4 shots of espresso, if you were wondering. 

Later on in the day, my friends joined me at my current fave restaurant and then we did a Pedal Tavern. I had to find an outfit that was appropriate for both of those activities! Basically, it needed to be special, but not too fancy. And side note - fittingly for my birthday, I wore my birthstone in 2 different ways!

Details below!

Embroidered Peasant Dress (im sry but no, it's def a top): Forever 21 // Denim (old, similar here): Forever 21 // Faux Suede Ankle Booties (brown): Forever 21 // Orchard Street Small Natalya Handbag (in pink bonnet): kate spade new york //  Mirrored Metallic Cateye Sunglasses: Charming Charlie // Born to Be November Pendant: kate spade new york // Going Places Metro Watch: kate spade new york // Sailor's Knot Hinged Bangle (rose gold, available in some stores): kate spade new york // November Birth Month Charm Bangle (shiny gold finish): Alex & Ani // Zeta Tau Alpha Charm Bangle (Rafaelian silver finish): Alex & Ani // Zest for Life Charm Bangle (shiny gold finish): Alex & Ani // Faux Gem Cluster Studs: Forever 21 // NYX Butter Lipstick (not sure of the color, but it's a very natural tannish pink!): Ulta Beauty

My clothing here is essentially all from Forever 21! Accessories are from a few different sources. Like I said, this Forever 21 "dress" is definitely not a dress. I'm 5'2'' and it was short on me! But to each's own. So far, I'm loving these inexpensive brown booties though! And for the denim, not my favorite pair, but it was the only color I had that seemed to be working with this outfit.

The sunglasses were something I got for a great deal at Charming Charlie a week or two ago! The deal is 2 for $15, and since I'm ashamed to say I do not treat my sunglasses very well, this was perfect for me! I also love how reflective they are. And I'm obsessed with a good cateye.

I purchased this Small Natalya handbag shortly before my trip to London and I absolutely adore it. It was the perfect travel handbag because it's not too big, but still fits comfortably as a crossbody if you want it to be! That's how I normally wear it if you look at any of my IG photos. I really didn't think that a pebbled leather bag would be my first handbag purchase from kate, but this one is still structured enough for my liking...even though it's slouchy. And the good news...it's now on sale!

For my jewelry, I was wearing the new Born to Be pendant with my birthstone (topaz)! I love each and every one of these pendants and I actually want them all, regardless of the month they represent! They all have an adorable little saying on them, mine says "hello sunshine." For my Alex & Ani bracelets, I also had my birthstone, a ZTA charm, and the charm that represents Alex's Lemonade Stand. My gem cluster earrings were so cheap from Forever 21, but I've gotten so many compliments! They match my favorite colors of fall. My watch is  another thing I bought shortly before London. It has a map of Europe and says "going places." If you know me, it's perfect!

This NYX Butter Lipstick is amazing. I can't read the color on the actual lipstick anymore, but if I were to guess, I'd say it's "sandy kiss." It's a brownish color with a hint of pink. It looks very natural on my lips. Butter is in the title, and it really is buttery and moisturizing!

I was overall v. pleased with this birthday outfit! Hope to share more soon!
